Bloodhound would have started with more renewable technologies if conceived from scratch today, he said. “When we started back in 2008-2009, the original design was based on existing technology and tried to keep up with the times to stay on the cutting edge,” Warhurst says. “The next project with Bloodhound was to basically use the best battery and hydrogen technology. It will be interesting to see where that goes.”
In January the Bloodhound project announced it was looking for a new owner. Warhurst bought the operation in 2018 after the previous owners failed to raise enough funding to keep it going.
